Tying the knot at the big mantap in town is so passé. Exclusive affairs in exotic locales are the way to go. Here’s how to plan a destination wedding that’s the stuff of dreams:
Beach, mountain or desert
Your choice of destination will, of course, depend on what you both love. If it’s a sun-soaked beach ceremony you want, check out various possible spots. Is it rustic, but stylish or the elegance of a palace that you want?
The season is the reason
Do your research and find out what the weather will be like at the destination when you want to get married there. You don’t want your big day in Bali to be rained out or for temperatures to be searing hot when you tie the knot in a jungle setting.
Test drive the destination
Yes, it’s going to add a bit to the expenses, but you can save on unexpected costs later if you make a quick trip to get a sense of your wedding destination and know exactly what to expect there.
Find the right people
Accept the fact that you can’t do everything long distance. So, roping in a local person to carry out your plans helps – from knowing where to order flowers to finding the right caterer.
Embrace local tradition
If you’ve chosen a place because it’s special to you and your partner, it would add an extra touch to your wedding if you weave in local elements into your ceremony and into the celebrations. Perhaps, wear something with a local inspiration or serve regional cuisine for the wedding lunch or dinner.

Remember your guests
Even as you’re planning the big day, don’t forget your guests who’ll be arriving from various places. You need someone in charge of airport pick-ups, accommodation, local transport etc.
